Active Server Pages
Abbreviated as ASP, a specification for a dynamically created Web page with a .ASP extension that utilizes ActiveX scripting - usually VB Script or Jscript code. When a browser requests an ASP, the Web server generates a page with HTML code and sends it back to the browser. ASP.NET is the latest version that FrontPage fully supports.
ActiveSync
Microsoft® Exchange ActiveSync is a protocol that allows applications to talk directly to the Exchange Server. Powered by FrontPage's Mobile Messaging Service, your ActiveSync enabled-device can synchronize with your email, calendar, and contacts. It's easy to read all your email, including HTML messages and attachments.
Aggregated Exchange mailbox space
Aggregated disk space expands your storage capacity by giving you the freedom to set your own storage space limits for mailboxes based on the total storage space available from all users. This means that each mailbox can have its own disk quota uniquely set to better adjust to your company's storage needs. Combined disk space allows administrators to control allocations and set limits for each mailbox user.
Anti-Spam and Anti-Virus Shield
FrontPage mail servers have anti-spam and anti-virus protection to significantly reduce the amount of spam and viruses you might receive through any email that you might receive.  Anti-spam and anti-virus partners include Declude, Trend Micro and Symantec.
ASP Components
An ASP component saves ASP programmers invaluable time because the component has properties, methods, and events which the programmer can code against. This decreases the amount of coding that needs to be written. ASP components are made by a variety of companies and need to be installed on a web server for them to be accessible by ASP programmers. FrontPage support numerous ASP components. See what is included in the 20 ASP Basic Pack and the 40 ASP Pro Pack.
ASP Mail
AspMail is used on more ASP installations than any other commercial or free product. Used on 1000's of Websites around the world, this component allows you to send SMTP mail directly from a Web page. ASP Mail is fast and has very low CPU utilization.
Automated Order Confirmations
The order confirmations are sent out automatically to your customers after placement of their order. When customers receive these emails they feel informed that you did receive their order and may be less likely to contact you, which in turn saves you a great deal of time.

Customer Ratings
Fpweb.net customers are periodically asked to review and rate their web hosting plan on a scale of 1-5 (1 being the lowest). The plans are rated by the following criteria and then averaged for a total: 1) overall 2) features 3) value 4) met needs.
Customizable Error Pages

Data Transfer (bandwidth)
Whenever a visitor comes to your site, data is sent from Fpweb.net dedicated servers to your visitor's computer. This data can be composed of web pages, images, movies, sound files, programs, compressed files, or anything else on your site that can be viewed or downloaded by visitors. All this requested data added together equals your total data transfer (also called bandwidth or traffic) per month.
Dedicated MySQL Server
MySQL databases are hosted on optimized and secure dedicated MySQL servers. We DO NOT host MySQL on the same boxes as customer websites!
Dedicated SQL Server 2005/2008
SQL database hosting optimized and secure dedicated SQL 2005/2008 servers. We DO NOT host SQL on the same boxes as customer websites!
Default Delivery (Catch-All / Nobody Account)
Default delivery, most often referred to as a "catch-all" or "nobody" account, will act as a "catch-all" account for any non-specified or misspelled email addresses, as long as the domain name is correct. You will be able to retrieve these messages at the mail account you specify as the catch-all.
Digital Delivery of Products
Digital delivery of downloadable goods allows your customers to immediately receive the product upon completion of purchase. There are three methods. 1) Auto attachments - attach the product to the customer confirmation email. 2) Auto generation of download links - displays the hyperlinks to the products. These hyperlinks allow the customer to immediately download their purchase. 3) Generation of secure download links - improve the digital delivery by adding these extra facilities. Customer never sees the real location of the product and therefore cannot bookmark them. Customer may within limits you set, login and download the product gain if it is lost. Limits can be set on the number of times a product can be downloaded or a date after which no downloads are possible. Limits can be altered using browser based administration. Enables logging of downloads.
Disk Space
Your hosted website consists of text, graphics, sound, video or database files that occupy disk space on a server. If you already have this data on your computer, check the combined size of those files to help you select a hosting package with enough disk space. You can always buy additional disk space or switch plans as your site grows.
Domain Name Registration
Domain names are used in URLs to identify particular Web pages. For example, in the URL http://www.fpweb.net/support/, the domain name is fpweb.net. A domain name allows someone to access your website through a web browser.
DotNetNuke
DotNetNuke is an open-source content management system ideal for creating and deploying projects such as commercial websites, corporate intranets and extranets, and online publishing portals. DotNetNuke is built on a Microsoft® ASP.NET (VB.NET) platform, and is easily installed and hosted with most of our hosting plans. DotNetNuke requires a SQL server database to function.

Email Accounts
Email is short for electronic mail. It allows the sending, and receiving, of textual messages, including attachments, to another email account (also called an email address). Every hosted Microsoft® Exchange plan includes numerous email accounts that can be created. Create multiple email addresses for yourself, friends and associates with your own domain name, such as you@yourdomain.com, business@yourdomain.com, and family@yourdomain.com. Anti-spam and anti-virus protection is included. You can also use your favorite email program (such as Outlook or Eudora) to access your mail.
Email Aliases
An email 'alias' is not a real email account. Instead it is an address that forwards all email it receives to another email account. For example, if you establish an email alias called info@yourdomain.com to go to johndoe@yourdomain.com, then all email sent to info@yourdomain.com will be automatically forwarded to johndoe@yourodmain.com. In this case, 'info' is called an alias of 'johndoe'. You can also setup an email alias so that email is forwarded to an account outside of your domain name as well. For example, you can setup info@yourdomain.com to go to johndoe@yourisp.com.
Email Forwards
Email forwards enable you to have email messages redirected to a specific email account. For example, you can set up the email account info@yourdomain.com to forward all messages to your account you@yourdomain.com. These forwards can be added or deleted at any time.
Email Storage
When you receive email, the messages occupy disk space on a mail server. You can then use an email program (i.e. Outlook, Eudora, Netscape Mail, Pegasus) to retrieve your mail from the hosted email server, which essentially stores the email messages on your computer for viewing at anytime. This removes the email messages from the mail server and frees more disk space on the mail server allowing you to receive more emails.
Enterprise Manager
SQL Server Enterprise Manager is the primary administrative tool for Microsoft SQL Server 2005/2008 and provides a Microsoft® Management Console (MMC)-compliant user interface. Fpweb.net offers a free alternative for all users via their control panel.
